Bright, juicy and floral. A bit of CO2. Just very much lacking depth and complexity.

Juicy, very fruity, loads of raspberries, navel oranges, cranberry relish sauced by building tannins. Paired with a turkey meatloaf and it went so well that I’m picking up another for Thanksgiving.

Jean Claude Lapalu is a magician. Like its other cuvées, this wine is a nectare of fruit. 100% gamay, "natural" wine without sulphites added (or very little) ... a complete, round, harmonious and homogeneous wine from one end to the other. Carbonic maceration bringing a lot of freshness and an explosion of fruit / flowers on the palate. A wonderful comtempory wine for those who like fruit and freshness. Endless finish, proof of the great mastery of the winemaker

Good. Not as good as the first or at Gramercy Tavern. Didn’t use the aerator this time and that helped. Very fruity.

More fruity than I remember. Used the aerator and might have been a bad idea. Still good but less of the delicious Pinot flavors from last time.
